Q: What is your favourite winter destination and why?

A: It has to be Meribel in France.  Not only because we’ve just come back from there and LOVED it but also because it’s so close to home which makes it super easy to get to, even just for a long weekend. If you’re into skiing or snowboarding, you have the beautiful alps at your disposal and the views at the top are breath-taking.

One of Meribel’s charms is that it boasts a chalet style architecture, so you won’t find loads of high rise buildings but instead a handful of beautiful, luxurious chalets. Snowy mountains, blue skies, cosy chalets, Meribel is definitely up there for the perfect Christmas getaway.

The food is amazing as well, cheese fondue and hot chocolate by the fire? Yes please!

Q: What is your favourite winter destination and why?

A: Our favourite winter destination is St Moritz in Switzerland. We love how pretty and quaint this Alpine Resort town in Engadine is, perfect for a long weekend escape to relax in one of their beautiful hotels or to go skiing.

Q: What is your favourite winter destination and why?

A: My favourite winter destination is Gstaad in Switzerland. It’s one of the prettiest alpine resorts I’ve visited, filled with beautiful Swiss cottage style architecture and strict planning rules mean the whole area has to remain true to its heritage. We stayed at the Ermitage which is a beautiful, luxury resort perfect for families (I took my parents). We also stayed at the super luxurious Alpina Hotel, which is where Madonna stays. I had a wonderfully decadent, romantic stay there with my boyfriend Charlie. There’s so much to in Gstaad too, we filled our trip with skiing, snowshoeing, shopping, spa treatments, horse carriage ride and a trip to the Xmas market. It was such a fun filled yet relaxing experience. I can’t want to go back! It’s a real winter wonderland experience, a very stylish one too!

Q: What is your favourite winter destination and why?

A: My favourite Christmas destination would be the Alsace region in France for all its beautiful Christmas markets and the festive vibes that make this part of the country so unique! The lights, the gingerbread houses and the Christmas decorations… everything is reunited to celebrate Christmas at its best!

Q: What is your favourite winter destination and why?

A: Dreaming of a winter escape takes me back to the start of the season where the Alps are lightly dusted with snow. The tiny hamlet of Findeln is perched high above the fairy-tale village of Zermatt and there is nothing better than sipping steaming hot chocolate at Chez Vrony with this view of the Matterhorn.
